Three prerequisites must be met in order for growth factor/matrix combinations to be effective in the clinic: First, the growth factor must bind to the matrix/ carrier and be delivered to the site in a form that can be active. Second, the growth factor must be at the site long enough to affect the cells responsible for tissue formation. Third, the growth factor must alter cellular activity. Certain growth factor/matrix carrier combinations have data that support all of these prerequisites, while others do not. This presentation will review the evidence for these prerequisites with regard to specific growth factor/matrix carrier combinations. The most clinically effective growth factor/matrix carriers are likely to have data to support each of them.
